Question: My son is 17 months old not eating food nd also not drinking milk..he only wants bf, plz reply
Answer: Hi.. Dear milk still remains the prior part of your baby 's diet. However, give your baby some tasty options, try giving semi liquid porridges (vegetable khichdi, lentil and rice porridges), boiled and mashed potatoes, bananas (mashed or in the form of smoothie). Avoid bananas during winters. If the baby is able to digest these food sources, then introduce ragi, oats, dalia. You can also make some cottage cheese and potato cutlets etc. Try to make her give seasonal fruits. It is a difficult phase I understand, but gradually it will change.

Question: My son is 10months old now he is suffering from fever he not eating anything only milk he is drinking what should I feed him
Answer: Hello dear. You should have started with the semi solids after 6 months. Below are some type of foods which u can give to ur baby :- 1.) Pureed vegetables (sweet potatoes, squash) 2.) Pureed fruit (apples, bananas, peaches) 3.) Pureed meat (chicken, pork, beef) 4.) Semi-liquid, iron-fortified cereal. 5.) Small amounts of unsweetened yogurt (no cow's milk until age 1) Some finger food favorites: O-shaped toasted oat cereal; small chunks of banana or other very ripe, peeled fruit like mango, plum, pear, peach, cantaloupe, or seedless watermelon; small cubes of tofu; well-cooked pasta spirals, cut into pieces; thin cheese strips or very small chunks of cheese; cut-up seedless grapes ... Most pediatricians recommend starting your infant on Yogurt around 7-8 months of age. Some pediatricians also recommend yogurtas a great first food (from 6 months+). Selecting a Whole Milk Yogurt is the most beneficial to your infant as babies need fats in their diets for proper growth. You can give ur baby a variety of food but in a puree or porridge state. Breakfast idly with breast milk or formula upma Roti with milk or formula mashed dosa mashed Snack boiled apple mashed banana puree vegetable soup diluted fresh fruit juices ragi milk ghee sugar Lunch dal rice mashed khichdi sooji kheer cerelac or nestum Snack whole grain puffs mashed potatoes tossed in butter peach puree Dinner should always be light as hard carbohydrate like wheat ragi dal can cause indigestion or loose motions Give sooji kheer nestum or cerelac by 8 pm u can keep feeding ur baby breast milk or formula as needed between the meals. Be sure to use alot of ghee as fats and oils help in gaining weight. Hope i helped.
